Well I plan to tune in to the late night TV shows tonight to see how these all-star comedian hosts react to the death of Richard Pryor on the weekend. I heard he was an inspiration for so many comedians out there including David Letterman and Jay Leno.
I fully expect them to kiss the ground Pryor walked on. He was truly one of the most legendary, ground-breaking comedians of all time. He left himself, all of himself, on the stage with every performance.
My personal favorite Pryor movie was Stir Crazy, where he teamed up with Gene Wilder. I thought I was going to die laughing, watching that. That guy was way too funny by half.
